    By the way, what exactly are Greeters®?
    It is a global community of inhabitants who voluntarily welcome anyone wishing to discover a territory from the point of view of a local.
    Meeting a Greeter is the promise of a memorable moment with a loving, passionate volunteer and ambassador for their city or region. Greeters enjoy welcoming visitors as they would welcoming friends. They offer their time to discover the places they love, tell their story, their neighborhood or village and share their way of experiencing everyday life.

    Don't be mistaken, the Greeter is not a professional guide! The places you will go through are only a pretext to meet and a way to better understand how local inhabitants live. Come alone or in a group of up to six people for a walk or even just for a chat over a drink.

    If you believe that travel can be a vector of peace and better understanding between people, meeting a Greeter is for you ! Our community shares the idea that travelling can be a formidable opportunity for a real exchange between populations and visitors and that this should not be exclusively possible as an act of consumption. Do not look for a price, meeting a greeter is 100% free (yes, really !).
